The sphinx wanted to know which one of the three gods stole the golden apple. Was it Horus, Anubis or Osiris?

''I didn't,'' said Horus.
''Osiris did,'' said Anubis.
''Anubis is lying,'' said Osiris

chessgenius: Suppose Horus is telling the truth; this means the other two are lying. But if Anubis is lying then Osiris's statement is true, which is a contradiction. Therefore Horus is lying about not stealing the apple, so he is the thief.

I got the right answer and thought Ihad figured it out, but actually it is still a mystery to me even though my theory was right. It is not the same as some of you are saying. Very confusing. :roll:
